SOUTHERN UTAH UNIVERSITY

Why Accounting? My plan was to be a superhero, but that didn’t work out, so I went with the next best thing.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Hmm…2024? I see myself doing fulfilling and challenging work at a company that values me for the skills and personality that I have to offer. I hope to have a work schedule that allows me to put my marriage first and be an involved father.

Favorite accounting class? Definitely audit. Last summer, I worked as an audit intern for two great public accounting firms, but I had not yet taken an audit class. I knew absolutely nothing about auditing when I started the internships. The next fall I took audit and realized how clueless I really was. It was a humbling experience! I am grateful for the patience of my mentors at Haynie & Company and BDO!

Favorite thing about Southern Utah University. The professors in the SUU School of Business are awesome. Many have made an extra effort to get to know me and have helped with a lot more than just learning the course material. Professors who know me, my family, and my life circumstances have been able to give me personalized advice as I begin my career.

Free Time. I love being with my wife, Mattie, and my 2-year-old son, Finley. We drive around looking for cool tractors, eat lots of chocolate chips, and do anything that involves a ball. I love soccer and wish I had more time to play, referee, and watch. Finley is currently in training for the 2034 FIFA World Cup — assuming the United States qualifies.
